I was a guard at Guantanamo when it opened in 2002 and I believe it should be closed down.
My name is Brandon Neely I served in the United States Army as a Military Police officer from August 2000 until 2005. I deployed multiple times Egypt, Guantanamo, and Iraq. I was working at Guantanamo when the facility opened on January 11th, 2002 I actually escorted the second detainee to arriving at Camp X-Ray that day who was the Australian detainee David Hicks.
A few years ago I decided to break my Non-Disclosure Agreement I signed when I left Guantanamo to tell my side of the story about what went on there and why I believe the facility should be shut down. I reached out the UC Davis Guantanamo Project and told my full story. Since telling my story I have been threatened by the Government, harassed at work, and much more.
I also had the privilege to meet with two former detainees in London as part of a BBC documentary “Guantanamo Reunited” that I once guarded at Guantanamo who like many there where innocent and released without any charge.
